  • Highway Damage Caused By Horseshoes Prompts Wisconsin Bill (Amish Criminals)

    02/09/2018 6:46:37 AM PST · by rey · 27 replies
    A bill has been proposed in the Wisconsin Legislature that aims to limit damage caused by horseshoes on freshly paved rural highways, the Leader-Telegram reports. State Rep. Kathy Bernier, R-Lake Hallie, is leading the push for the legislation after hearing local officials had considered creating their own laws, impacting area Amish populations. “I would rather do something that is consistent statewide,” Bernier told the Leader-Telegram The bill would allow counties or municipalities to adopt ordinances prohibiting studded horseshoes on roads where they’ll cause damage from April through October — the road construction season. Under her bill, the first offense would...

    Since my last column on academic hypocrisy several readers have written to express the view that intolerance toward conservative Christians is the only form of intolerance that academics are willing to tolerate. Such a view seems reasonable at first glance. Upon further reflection it misses the mark. Tolerance presupposes a) a moral judgment against something and b) the choice to permit it. Hence, my readers’ views are overly charitable. In order to elaborate, I ask my readers to imagine the following thought experiment:The Dean of Journalism at a large public university refuses to sponsor a speaker as a part of...
  • Hispanic Caucus: We Rejected GOP Member Because We Use Our Meetings To Strategize Against Trump

    Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) was denied membership into the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. Is it a shocker? No. It has all-Democratic members, but former Rep. Allen West (R-FL) was able to become a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. Also, Curbelo could have joined the Republican alternative, the Congressional Hispanic Conference. Whatever the reasons, there’s another that we also probably should have known as to why he was rejected: The all-Democratic Congressional Hispanic Caucus says they use their meetings to strategize against Trump (via Business Insider): . . .
  • 4chan Launches “It’s Ok To Be White” Campaign, Causing Mass Outrage WorldWide

    11/01/2017 9:22:05 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 98 replies
    over the alleged hate crime that recently occurred at Boston College. A crime that was nothing more than the placement of a single poster on campus with the words “Don’t apologize for being white.” Seemingly inspired by this development and the overblown reaction to it. The infamous trolls over at 4chan’s politically incorrect board have just launched a new widespread campaign set to take this poster idea to the next level. The idea was simple. If a seemingly innocuous message like the one posted at Boston College could cause such a reaction, what would happen if a similar message was...

    The Washington Post published an article Thursday that called for a constitutional amendment to ban inequality and racist speech. As part of the publication’s series published Thursday called, “Fix this democracy—now, 38 ideas for repairing our badly broken civic life,” the Post featured author Ibram X. Kendi’s proposal for “A Constitutional Amendment On Equality.” Kendi writes that the United States needs, “an Anti-Bigotry Amendment that would constitutionalize a critical principle: Group inequity is evidence of discrimination.” “The amendment would make group inequity illegal and ban the incitement of bigotry, as the incitement of anti-Semitism is banned in Germany. Claims that...

    Seven Signs of Liberal Privilege Alongside accusations of racism, sexism, homophobia, and Islamophobia, we can now list “white privilege” and “male privilege” as ideological weapons that the far left uses in their nonstop attacks on America’s culture.  Rather than going on the defensive against the left’s latest accusations, however, the rest of us should see the tactic for what it is and for what it reveals about the need to confront a much more pervasive problem:  liberal privilege.It is important to see the left’s privilege offensive in its broader strategic context.  The left’s accusations of white privilege and male privilege...

    University Leaders Call Out Bigoted Democrats. Will miracles never cease? – The presidents of Notre Dame and Princeton University wrote scathing letters to longtime anti-Catholic bigot Sen. Dianne Feinstein, after her inquisition of the religious beliefs of a Catholic Trump nominee for the federal bench. While it is wonderful that these two presidents finally, at long last decided to weigh in against the anti-Catholic, anti-Christian bigotry that has become part of the daily playbook of the Democrat Party on Capitol Hill, it is worth noting that this is nothing new, and that Sen. Feinstein has been plying her bigotry on...

    Piers Morgan clashed with sacked L'Oreal transgender model Munroe Bergdorf on Good Morning Britain over her statement that 'all white people are racist'. Morgan marked his return to the show with a fiery interview opposite Bergdorf, who made the headlines last week after she was fired by L'Oreal Paris for a lengthy Facebook rant. During the post she fumed: 'Honestly I don't have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people.' Morgan took the model to task over the comments and said they were 'deeply offensive' and a 'load of rubbish'. Bergdorf...

    We were told to protest violence. Okay... Then we were told to protest slavery. Okay... Then racial bigotry. Okay… Good Americans should object to violence, like that committed by the villains of Chicago. We should object to slavery, both as once practiced by Democrats in the CSA, and as still practiced, today, in Muslim countries. And of course we should object to racism, particularly in the United States, a country in which all citizens are intended to be equal under the law, with equal opportunity to succeed, in fact, to prosper… to soar up to whatever heights their own ability...

    While pundits across the political spectrum criticized President Trump’s initial response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia earlier this month, one prominent left-leaning American jurist and lifelong Democrat is calling out the progressive-left for its own failure to condemn violent extremism. Alan Dershowitz, a famed defense attorney and professor emeritus at Harvard Law School, criticized President Trump’s response to the killing of a demonstrator in Charlottesville by a white supremacist, writing in The Algemeiner that the president “has a special obligation to single out for condemnation… individuals and groups that claim… to speak in his name.” But Dershowitz also noted...

[snip]"He [Trump} knew that the election of a black president had stirred a kind of ugly racial animus. A small subset but he knew how to get them" Zakaria said.

    Can we just get along? This question is being asked more and more, what with the bitter polarization of the nation. The answer, right now, would appear to be a resounding no. It’s not because we can’t. We don’t want to. I had that thought the other day when I was listening to the Seattle City Council. Many council meetings of late involve left-wingers shouting at other left-wingers for not being left-wing enough. But on this day, a new purity test of left-wingedness was revealed. The council was debating the juvenile-justice issue. Not everyone agrees whether a new jail should...

    The beauty of progressive nonprofits is that they can make their so-called objectives as vague and unachievable as possible, because if were to actually achieve their goals, they'd go out of business. We've also found that many of these liberal nonprofits, especially those who seek to redress issues like racism, are mostly led by whites who pay themselves handsomely. For a group that seeks to eradicate "bigotry", the Southern Poverty Law Center leadership itself is very, very white.

    Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year have often been due to the votes of white men. If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa's biggest cities. If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men...

    .....right-wing militants who, since 2002, have killed more people in the United States than jihadis have. In that time, according to New America, a Washington think tank, Islamists launched nine attacks that murdered 45, while the right-wing extremists struck 18 times, leaving 48 dead. These Americans thrive on hate and conspiracy theories, many fed to them by politicians and commentators who blithely blather about government concentration camps and impending martial law and plans to seize guns and other dystopian gibberish, apparently unaware there are people listening who don’t know it’s all lies. These extremists turn to violence—against minorities, non-Christians, abortion...

    Candidates aspiring to take over as chairman for the Democratic National Committee met Monday night to discuss what went wrong in 2016 and how to get the party back on track. Early into the event the candidates gravitated toward a particular scapegoat for the party’s poor showing in November: Political consultancies owned by white people. “We have to stop, particularly with the consultants,” said the chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party, Jaime Harrison. “You cannot come to the DNC and get a contract and the only minority face you have is the person answering the phone.” Minority consultants “need...

    After leading a Women’s March during the Sundance Film Festival, talkshow host Chelsea Handler sat down with Variety‘s Elizabeth Wagmeister for an interview. During the chat, she was asked if she would ever interview Donald Trump. She’s already told other outlets she would never do that, but this time, the follow-up question was whether she’d ever consider Melania Trump.
